POSTED: 07/11/11 12:32 PM

GREAT BAY\ORANJESTAD – Police Chief Commissioner Peter de Witte and Inspector Rudolph Bloeiman have opened talks with Interpol’s Secretary General Ronald Noble and his staff about establishing an independent Interpol agency here. St. Maarten, Bonaire and Curacao were served by an Interpol agency based on Curacao prior to the dismantling of the Netherlands Antilles on October 10, 2010.

The discussion on setting up such an agency was held on the sidelines of the 21st Las Americas Regional Interpol Conference in Aruba. The regional conference is held every two years and de Witte, who’s been police chief for just over a year, was part of the reason the meeting was hosted in Oranjestad, where he used to work as police chief. The Las Americas region consists of South, North and Central American countries and the countries of the Caribbean. The talks usually focus on regional security issues like drugs, firearms, cyber crime and terrorism.

“The talks were very positive. All preparations between the secretary general of Interpol, the office of the Minister of Justice and the Police Force of St. Maarten (KPSM) will be made to make a proposal at the general assembly which will be held in October/November 2011,” a release from the police stated.
